Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"As those who are familiar with me know, I enjoy buying some of
the latest gear available, and seeing how it is handled by a
variety of Linux distributions. Sometimes, though, it is possible
to get a bit too far ahead of the general development/release
cycle. The HP Pavillion dm1-1020ez that I purchased in January is a
case in point.
"To be honest, I bought it because I wanted to try out the
SU2300 Dual Core Celeron processor. At the time I thought that I
might run into problems with the GMA4500MHD graphic controller, but
I didn't really think about some of the other pitfalls. Now I know
"I was initially pleased to see that the CPU and graphic system
were recognized and properly supported by all of the Linux
distributions that I typically use."
